LOBBYING

Share

Everywhere I go, I hear people saying that 8th Dist Congressman Larry Bucshon has sold his palatial home here in southern Indiana and has moved his family to Washington DC, full time. If that's true, and I believe it is, it might mean that Larry, having put in the requisite 4 years for Congressional retirement, is about to retire from the Congress gig, with full pay and insurance coverage for life. But moving to DC? That makes you wonder. If Larry were just going to go fishing or play golf in his retirement years, why would he need to move to Washington, to do it?

I'm guessing that this means ………………… 

………………………………………………………………………………….means that like many other members of Congress who retire, Larry is going to go for the really BIG $$$, by becoming a lobbyist.  A lobbyist is a person who is paid by big corporations to bribe Congressmen to vote against the interests of their constituents.

There have been many attempts to pass laws to stop retired Congressmen from selling their influence in this manner, but (surprise surprise!) the members of Congress always vote against this!
